Union City, CA – Ariat International, Inc. announces the expansion of its leading tall boot collection with the introduction of the Ariat Crowne Pro Field Boot™. Incorporating Ariat’s unique Cobalt™ Technology, this redesign of the enormously popular Ariat Crowne Field Boot™ delivers the most advanced technology available in its category with the latest styling and the finer features associated with custom boots. Designed to meet the demands of the “A Circuit” hunter/jumper rider, the new Ariat Crowne Pro Field Boot™ is the first in a series of new Ariat tall boots to be introduced in 2004.
“Expanding our English tall boot collection to include competition quality performance boots like the Ariat Crowne Pro Field Boot™ signifies our commitment to equipping all riders with the latest technological advances to enhance their performance as athletes,” stated Beth Cross, President of Ariat International, Inc. “With the introduction of our new collection, we now provide the most extensive English riding boot line in the U.S,” concluded Ms. Cross.
Available in both zip and non-zip styles, the Crowne Pro Field Boot™ features the highest quality French baby calf leather which polishes to a high sheen. The ¾ window lining, most popularly used in custom boot designs, includes a cut-out inner calf window for a ”glove like” fit and feel. The high Spanish cut topline and swagger tab create an elegant, elongated look.
“We designed the new Ariat Crowne Pro Field Boot™ for competitive riders that are interested in the same high quality material, fit and design featured in custom boots, but include the convenience and cost-efficiency of purchasing ready-to-wear. By combining the latest styling with Ariat’s exclusive Cobalt Technology, we feel we’ve created the best boot available in both the custom and off-the-shelf marketplace” concluded Holly Andrews, Ariat English Product Manager and Top A/O (Amateur-Owner) Hunter Rider.
Ariat Cobalt Technology™ includes complete cushioning and support through a patented composite fiber forked shank, a gel-cushion insole, and SKYDEX™ Smarter Cushioning™ system in the heel.. The unique 6 mm Duratread™ outsole is durable yet also stirrup sensitive, and is finished with a rounded edge for a refined, traditional appearance.
The Ariat Crowne Pro Field Boot is available in both zip and non-zip styles. The Ariat Crowne Pro Field Boot Zip™ includes a back zip system that provides easy entry and allows for a tight fit. The boot is ideal for riders with a high instep or previous ankle injuries seeking maximum support and comfort. While both styles include an elastic gusset for custom fit at the topline and nine pre-laced eyelets for easy entry, the zip version offers standard laces as well.
Paired with Ariat’s Legacy Hunt Coat™, Victory Show Shirt™, and award-winning Pro Circuit Breeches™, the Ariat Crowne Pro Field Boot™ is the perfect choice for today’s competitive hunter/jumper riders who know the added technology of Ariat translates to better performance in the ring.
